Stonehenge tickets – a ticket to another world
Located eight miles north of Salisbury, Stonehenge is a primaeval monument in Salisbury Plain, England, and is one of the most well-known landmarks in the UK. Archaeologists believe that Stonehenge was built between 3000 BC and 1520 BC in six stages. It took an estimated 1,500 years for Neolithic builders to erect the monument, which comprises roughly 100 large upright stones positioned in a circle. Today, 5,000-year-old Stonehenge is one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites and draws more than 800,000 visitors each year. Check out this incredible ancient construction by booking Stonehenge tickets.
Discover the story of Stonehenge: an ancient mystery
Researchers have been studying Stonehenge and the surrounding area to find clues regarding the purpose of the monument’s existence. Excavation and underground imaging indicate that Stonehenge was once a part of a complex set of structures – unknown settlements, ancient burial mounds, gold-adorned burials and processional routes. The studies suggest even more complicated mysteries about the Neolithic and Bronze Age than previously thought.
With every new find, Stonehenge gives rise to more questions and makes scientists wonder about its importance and unique value to the people of ancient Britain. The original purpose of this strange yet beautiful stone circle is still a puzzle to be solved.
Walk in the footsteps of Neolithic man through the ancient landscape
Explore the terrain on foot and visit Neolithic Houses to see objects and tools of early Neolithic life. Upon attending the visitor centre and the world-class exhibition using Stonehenge tickets, you will come across 250 ancient artefacts and a 5,500-year-old man.
Compelling archaeological evidence proposes that Stonehenge was once a burial site. Many scholars claim that it also served other purposes such as a resting spot for royalty, a religious pilgrimage stop, a ceremonial site or a memorial to honour and connect with ancestors spiritually.
Due to restoration attempts, visitors cannot climb the stones but can access a footpath ten metres from the monument. You can pick any day to visit as the tour is available every day of the week. Purchase Stonehenge tickets to witness one of the great wonders of the world. It is an enigma that will leave you puzzled and amazed at the same time.
